Trees are cleared and the trail looks great.

Good stuff out there, Ron. Everything looking pretty firm. Good to see my 'favorite' part of Red survived the cuts:

Loving the new options on Green. Tried my luck vs a couple. Wondering where the exit line is for the second skinny: ;-)

Thanks Ron for taking out the trees. Great conditions today.
Traction galore. I love it when there is just a bit of moisture in the trail.

Still great. Even after today's rain.
Night ride in reverse = 8)

Nice riding Steve. That's not a skinny, it's a log. I had eyeballed it for possible treatment, obviously it doesn't need any.

Yeah, if you want ONE rider to use it :lol:

You could put an entry ramp and an exit ramp on it, then cut down the deck to flatten it, and possibly get more riders on it. It shouldn't be difficult to ride given how thick it is, but it would be very exciting with the height it has. Just don't fall off the side - Steve makes the unplanned dismounts look easier than they are!

Great conditions tonight.
Fast and still good traction.
No trees down. Clear sailing.
Lots of deer. Almost hit several.

Anderson is in pretty good condition, though with all the rain over the next couple days that will change. Be careful though, the face slappers are coming out in droves at the moment. Mainly on red, but there might have been a couple on blue and green.

Don't forget bug spray--lots of deer means lots of deer ticks which means (potentially) lyme disease...

Is it the camera, or do those trees spread as they go up? If so, you might be able to pop a bit of a wheelie and get through there cleanly! At speed, even :)

It's the fisheye, no doubt, making it look that way. I might drop this down to 740 or 750mm to match my other bikes, but no matter. In a few years, you'll need drop bars to fit thru there, at which point it will no doubt be rerouted.

They're staggered, so you just thread one grip through at a time. Easy once you do it a few times. (and bust a couple of knuckles)

You know, my parents always asked the same thing, right before they locked me in the basement. Unfortunately, I escaped, so now the whole world suffers.

It's mostly just a collection of me falling off a log, which I could argue only makes *me* look bad.

Good conditions overall but getting a little slappy out there.
Time to throw the hand pruners in the jersey pocket.
If you do any clearing, please only take out the face and leg slappers.
There is no need to remove anymore saplings near the trail.
